of leesburg, in a loudoun county, virginia, a bellwether county. one for barack obama four years ago but then went republican a year later in the gubernatorial election. as of friday morning, according to the real clear politics average, the state is tending towards romney. president obama and romney of the so much time in virginia and ohio that they will have to start paying taxes in both states. that's run the table at a grant states, mark -- let's run the table of battleground states, mark. >> ohio remains beyond romney's grass at this point, a large part because obama is doing better with white voters that he is across the country, in large part in the north and west of ohio and northeast of ohio, the industrial belt where the auto bailout made a difference. it is so much of a problem for romney there that rob portman on thursday, introducing romney in defiance, ohio, to a huge crowd, said, "we have got to talk about this auto bailout thing tonight." they are still trying to explain it. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it is a tough one to reach. if obamacare is ohio,
.3 percent. democrat mark warner, obama woman the 13 electoral votes by 16 points four years ago and now is tried and democrat part udall of colorado, obama won nine electoral votes by nine points and the race now is dead even. senator portman, the state most people think may decide the race and that is ohio, the obama camp says they have a big edge in early voting in your state and they also note they have 137 campaign offices around the country but the romney camp has only 39. >>guest: well, you mentioned first of all the real clear politics average in ohio being 2.3 percent in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9 percent. that is because the polls are closing. the latest poll was this morning in ohio by the ohio newspapers, showing the race is a dead heat. that is certainly what i feel. i feel like the momentum is on our side. i have been at six rallies the last week and at a dozen victory centers and the energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year. it is interesting to watch but we were down probably five or ten points before the debates and after the debates, wel
by 2.3. and democrat mark warner of virginia, obama won its 13 electoral votes by 6 points, four years ago and now is tied with romney. and, democrat mark udall of colorado, obama won the 9 electoral votes last time by nine points and the race there is now dead even. senator portman, let's start with the state i guess most people think may decide the race, that is ohio. the obama camp says they have the big edge in early voting in your state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country, and the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris, first of all, you mentioned the real clear politics average in ohio, 2.3%, in the president's favor and now it is 1.9%, actually because the polls are closing, the latest poll, by the ohio newspapers, showing the race a dead heat. and that is certainly what i feel. i also feel like momentum is on our side. i have been at 6 rallies over the last week and at about a dozen centers around the state and energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year and it is interesting to watch. but, we were down 5 to 10 points before the debates and
there. the virginia "washington post" poll has obama hanging onto the four-point lead and philadelphia enquirer, 49/42. two different polls here. minnesota is truly a 50/50 race right now. is that going to impact everything like doug is saying? they can't get accurate figures to know where they're up or down? >> it may. even though one of the super-pacs supporting romney is now advertising in pennsylvania trying to expand the map a little bit, we're not going to likely see mitt romney go to places like minnesota or pennsylvania. they're really going to double-down on about seven swing states, and he's right that we won't be able to see what's going to happen over the next week because the polling is going to be fairly messed up. so we're just going to have to wait and see, thomas. i think the obama campaign feels that they are ahead in the states that motor like ohio and wisconsin and nevada. so as far as it's concerned right now, mitt romney has to go to those states and hang out there until election day. >> iowa came out over the weekend, "the des moines register" it to endorse mitt
for something different. >> i'm going to vote for romney. i'm going to get rid of obama. he's been there four years and did not do what he said he would do. this is not change. this is the same old thing. >> dean thinks president obama has led the country down the wrong path. he is not alone. louisiana has voted republican for decades. aaron is an environmental activist. louisiana is home to almost half of the nation's wetlands, but they are being destroyed by canals built to serve as oil and gas wells. >> not enough people care. not enough people are demanding action from politicians. not enough people are demanding changes to where we get our energy from. that's one of our largest challenges. >> since 2005, over 340 square miles of wetlands around new orleans have vanished. experts believe this played a major role in the devastation of hurricane katrina. they warn of more disasters ahead due to climate change, but that was not a subject during the presidential debates. >> the no one talked about climate change. we had three debates and not a single mention of climate change. the first time
and cute and funny, a lot of people did decide to make the decision to go with barack obama four years ago, it wasn't fun like a lot of if i remember times for a lot of people and a lot of people are regretting it for four years. charles: i'm not going to ask you about your first time, nicole. >> this ad is gross, i find it to be offensive to me, as well. like she said. and i have to think about this girl being hot for obama. and sex sells for cars, sex sells for alcohol, it doesn't sell for the president of the united states. that is a higher ground, it's about the economy, it is about foreign policy, it's about jobs. it is not about sex to me, i think it's gross. charles: maybe when it's said and done, guys, that will be the-- the campaign that there is no higher ground. and for all u.s. markets may be closed, but we're open for business on "varney & company," up after the break, the latest forecast on hurricane sandy. how bad is this thing going to get and when can we expect the worst of it? that's next. are we there yet? are we there yet? are we there yet?

question is: where was president obama a month-and-a-half ago when four of our americans were locked down, pinned down, about to be assassinated? he was in las vegas campaigning, picking up chec checks. be fair, maybe he learned something from a month-and-a-half ago. >> bob: a couple of things going on. one, early voting has been canceled in both ohio and maryland and virginia. three states. now that is going to have some impact. not good for obama. romney what to cancel appearances in ohio, which were important to him. he did go to iowa, which indicates how close iowa really is. we'll talk about that a little bit, him getting in the "des moines register" endorsement, which is important i think. the other thing romney decided to do is do fund raising in the effected states which make sense. in the end, the president of the united states is commander-in-chief. he gets to take center stage. it only helps him. >> kimberly: dana? >> dana: from a political standpoint, romney's e-mail that went out to -- i'm not on the list but a friend sent it to me saying don't donate to our campaign, if you
because another four years of barack obama will be painful. gerri: we have a gallup tracking poll with from the leading obama 51-46%. and yet in the desperation that we are talking about, you alluded to it, but we did not say it. the comment from the president about romney calling him of the answer. now he used the word. the president used the word. >> the president of the united states. gerri: what does that tell you? >> what is interesting about all of these, what they're showing is that the debates, a lot of independents like to present less having seen him in the three debates whereas a lot of independents like mitt romney much more. the washington post-abc poll, 47-10 for romney liking him more rather than less. for obama it was 17-26 liking him less rather than more. so the debates did not serve the president well, and he continues down this path. it's kind of inexplicable. gerri: i want to play some sound from all right who i think some of the problem. voters pased. >> college graduates should not have to live out their 20's and their child to bed rooms staring out at fadin
in 2008? guest: 6. it went democratic four years ago. barack obama carried the state fairly easily. the polls are showing him with a lead of significance in this election. host: give us a sense of the demographics of the state's voters? who are we talking about? give us a sense of some key areas as we look at this map. guest: there are couple of key areas. first, let's look at eastern iowa, davenport and the surrounding area, a couple hundred thousand people, it is a swing county. davenport is industrial, democratic. it will depend on turnout. if you go to the northwest corner -- corridor of the state, that is a role, very republican area. -- a rural. an area that is more or less evangelical christians, and they're not excited about mitt romney. they are republicans. he does not energized them. we will see what the turnout looks like in northwest iowa. those two areas, if we want the turnout in posted areas, it's very heavy in the quad cities, but good news the democrats. it's very heavy in northwest iowa, but good for republicans. the central part of the states, including des moin
they talk to and probably you, too. do you want a glimpse of what four more years of obama will look like? earlier this week the president released a pamp let. what to expect if he were to win. he touts economic patriotism. that is a phrase he's used on the campaign trail for a while. >> it is time for a new economic ta patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> i get it about the class. but if we hit people with more tax people who are work maybe doing pretty well and somehow it is more patriotic to pay more taxes, i love what arthur godfrey said. he was proud to be a tax paying american and he could be just as proud for half of the money. it is not a matter of patriotism for the government to take more and more of what we earn and redistribute it not so much to people who are absolutely desperate and in need. but just to people who kind of like to have what somebody else had. there is no patriotism in that. it is working hard and not expecting our government to do something for us and expecting us to do something for our
washington post poll has president obama hanging on to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight point spread in virginia. in the buckeye state, a new ohio news poll has it dead even 49-49. any advantage the president had, five points, is now gone. on the trail yesterday mitt romney forced to change course his self because of the storm. after canceling three rallies in virginia, he teemed up with his running mate in ohio telling supporters only a ryan/romney could bridge the divide. >> we have to reach across the aisle. we have to find good democrats. democrats love america too. we have to reach across the aisle, find ways to bring in people from the other party, work together, collaborate, meet regularly and fight for the american people and we will. >> with democrats hammering mitt romney's opposition to the auto bailout especially in ohio, the republican candidate using a new ad to counter punch on what could be a decisive issue. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. fact checkers concern his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a i pla
, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. what mitt romney's tv ads say about women? [ romney ] i'm mitt romney or what mitt romney himself says? mitt romney: do i believe the supreme court... should overturn roe v. wade? yes. and it would be my preference that they, that they... reverse roe v. wade. hopefully reverse v roe v. wad. overturn roe v. wade. planned parenthood, we're going to get rid of that. i'll cut off funding to planned parenthood. anncr: no matter what mitt romney's ads say. we know what he'll do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. take a look at what is happening in virginia beach. is getting battered by that serve. the waves are coming into the to 20 feetre close are higher than that. we wanted to show you some of the video that has just come in. >> we have been seeing amazing from across the east coast. we're just getting word that the romney-ryan campaign has their schedule
obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> welcome back everyone to the continuing coverage of sandy and of course we're continuing to watch the storm as it starts to come ashore near atlantic city and we understand that the national weather service says that it's holding winds in some areas of 90 miles an hour. >> we are also getting a lot of reports that the power is going out. we have been reporting on since we came on tonight and we have seen that there are numerous but the numbers are starting to ramp up. the wind is going to keep bending and bending on the trees and eventually the trees will break and some of those lines will go down. >> we want to go to where a lot of folks head in this area. sherry is live in ocean city. sherry, it looks like the calm is coming now before the storm for you you. >> reporter: it is. we seem to be in one of these bands and one is past us and i am sure that we're going get hit by another one. it's a little bit of a welcome and given the pounding that we have taken here al
the green party. both pennsylvania voters -- will have essentially four choices for the presidency. guehost: the headline from the "philadelphia inquirer," obama still ahead, but romney up. joining us is the politics writer for the "philadelphia inquirer." how many do survey, what were the results? caller: this is a survey of 600 likely voters, all last week, tuesday through thursday. the margin of error is four percentage points. pennsylvania -- it has narrowed a little bit. it has swings towards romney a net two%. our last poll, just after the first debate -- is edging up, but obama has a steady lead. it is a democratic-leaning state these days. there has not been an awful lot of campaign activity in terms of action by the candidates. more important advertising -- they have not really targeted the state this year, unlike 2008 and the previous four cycles. host: there is an awful lot of advertising in the separate -- senate race, particularly by tom smith, the republican nominee. your polling shows that race is closer -- senator casey is still holding a lead of seven points over tom smith.
bitter even when it comes to sweets. >> when we bought put the obama cookies up we have four or five people within an hour friend us on our page. there is no winning that conversation. it is a little test to have people judge you on your politics as a business owner. bill: chile is a cincinnati tradition. one week before the election nearly everyone in the packed restaurant says they are voting. this woman for president obama. >> i will vote for him again. i think four years is not long enough time to make a complete difference but i think we're on the right path. bill: beverly roe has seen enough. >> i never been involved in the presidential elections and always voted but this one really scares me. bill: why? >> just what i've seen over the last four years. my lifestyle has changed. it's scary. bill: and how seriously do people in ohio take their civic responsibility? every person in that restaurant said they have either voted already or they will so come next tuesday, which is interesting to note, we were in franklin county about a month ago, columbus, ohio, we saw primarily obama
know what is going to be the result. maryland, only four states did better for obama than maryland. it's lock. virginia might be pivotal and maybe with the benefit of hindsight, we could have said, if romney had spent more time in virginia, although they've both spent so much time here, by canceling one event in virginia beach, i don't think it is going to make a difference. >> all right. fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin, thank you and stay safe. >> thank you. >> all right. that is just -- that just shows you how strong the storm is expected to be if we are talking about next week. this is not by any means a stretch of the imagination. >> yeah, the real key here. this is uncharted territory. we really haven't ever seen a storm like this sort of make that left hook this late in the season. the wind field is so expansive, all the way from maine to the carolinas, they are getting tropical force wind. it is very powerful. don't be fooled. it doesn't mean it is not still on the way. it will get steadily worse during the course of the day. the wind will be gusting 55, 65, maybe even 70
right. let's go to virginia. the latest "washington post" poll has president obama clinging to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight-point difference. shall we go to ohio? >> i want to talk about virginia for a second. mark, republicans got some good news in the form of an ohio poll we're about to put up. but couldn't really enjoy that because this "washington post" poll showing a four-point lead in virginia, that's just as bad news for republicans as the ohio poll was good news. >> i thought for a while that people were overly assuming virginia and thinking romney couldn't win ohio. in some ways ohio is a better state for him. virginia has all the big groups that are the president's base, younger voters, african-american, suburban women. i think the romney campaign might have to start thinking about a path with ohio but without virginia which is doable, but it does involve winning another big state or two to make up for that loss. >> that's what i was going to ask you. as you look at that electoral map, we've always said you've got to win ohio. ohio's going to decide it. but
of break away for president obama tonight is a lead of four in ohio. you can't go to the bank with a leader for. that is one of the bitterly is that we have. otherwise one or two points in virginia. gerri: let me give you a couple of points here. ohio, romney has in its 50-48. florida, romney 50, obama 49. north carolina -- neck and neck. so ultimately it seems to me this bill could go either way. and we will be watching. with this vote, decided on the basis of a single news story? could it be something that breaks over the weekend? something that carries the momentum? >> anything that moves a couple of hundred or a couple of thousand votes in any one of these battle ground states can determine the election. absolutely. my fear, and this is not as a pollster, but an american is that instead of one court case that we had in florida in 2000, we can have multiple court cases. this is just so close. gerri: i hope that is not the case. we have to go. thank you for being with us. we'll be right back. >> thank you. [ male announcer ] at scottrade, you won't just find us online, you'll also find us
, the american consulate in benghazi was attacked. four americans including our ambassador were killed. following this tragedy president obama announced an investigation and promised to bring those responsible to justice. but it appeared that the administration was witholding information to avoid being blamed for a terrorist attack on their watch right before the election. this has left some troubling questions. questions that fox news has not been afraid to ask 24 hours a day for the last six weeks. >> who is to blame for this? >> what happened with the intelligence? >> what went wrong, why was the intelligence not recognized and acted upon? >> special report. who did this and how? should our government have seen it come something in did president obama try to hide the truth? is this a huge scandal that exposes a failed obama foreign policy? or is mitt romney just saying it is? >> stephen: why didn't our consulate have more security? why was the intelligence so slow to come out? and more importantly, if you put a statement in the form of a question, is it journalism? [ laughter ] [cheers and app
and couldn't endorse another four years of obama. wow. you see folks on the left dismissing the value of this. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of readers switched voting allegiance. they flipped their allegiances in 2000. i have to say, i think an interesting number that matters is when you compare the endorsement numbers, obama has 34 endorsement from major, significant papers. romney has 27. look at the circulation of those endorsements. obama's total just over 9 million readers. >> 27? >> and mitt romney is at 27 and not 7. his total circulation just under 5 million. so i don't know that this is a scientific reading of those numbers, but you have to imagine 9 million readers reading obama endorsement, 5 million readers reading romney. i have to imagine that ends up as a net plus for obama somewhere down the line.
. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. we need josh mandel in washington. we need him now. president obama the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them like the stimulus package he said would result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy, ok? >> right? second, it was mitt romney who absolutel
people who voted for obama in 2008 watched him govern for four years and said not so good. try someone else. the alternative, the confederacy hypothesis those people somehow for some reason in the last four years became racist. finally a sad and weird story. sherman helsley the star of "the jefferson" has yet to be laid to rest three months after his death. his body is in cold storage in texas awaiting result of a dna test. a man claiming to be the actor's brother is suing his manager and roommate who is the sole beneficiary of hemley's will over the $50,00,00 estate. in the, will he referred to the woman as his beloved partner. hemsley said in media interviews he was an only child. >>> updating the top story, earlier story rather the coast guard says it has found one of the two crew members missing from the hms bounty, which sank off the coast of north carolina about 13 hours ago. you treb video we showed you earlier. the other 14 crew on board were rescued this morning. by a pair of coast guard helicopters. the female crew member found short while ago is said unfortunately to be unre
. chris: ok. >> i agree with that. if at any point obama had said here's what we're going to do and it's really exciting, over the next four years we started doing this thing and now we have the largest wind farm in the world in oregon, we're going to have another one in nevada. if he had just come with that kind of -- chris: big question. but paul krugman in "the new york times" on friday said he's afraid to do that. because he will be hit again with big spending and more deficits if he proposes anything. >> and playing the republicans' game. chris: ok. let's look at what could be the key to everything. ohio. and you've written about it. every winning republican has carried ohio. and joe, your magazine, "time" magazine has a big spread on it this week. why hoeup will decide the election -- ohio will decide the election and your ohio poll has obama up five points. the gender gap is big in ohio. obama up in 19 points among women. and another fascinating thing obama gets 43% of the wheat vote, higher than in most states. is it all about the auto bailout, smart move politically? >> it is
, but says maybe not this time voted for president obama in 2008. four years later, he's making a change of his on. michael, you say you have a confession to make. >> right. yes. i'm voting for mitt romney this time of the in my column, i explain why. just looking at the president there, you remember sort of the high hopes i think that at that point, after the election, what everybody was hoping that he would do. i was among those who hoped he would do what he said he would do, which was essentially unite the country around core principles and not everybody, but 60, 65% of the public to support big issue, big reforms, then you really have change in america. >> gretchen: instead, many people argue that the last four years have been the most partisan time in politics ever. >> yes. i have think he's, as i say in the column, why i turned against him essentially. i think he's dishouston texans. i think that was the big lie, that he would unite the country. second, i think he's incompetent. i see how he governed benghazi, being the latest example. but the budget, debt, all these issues. he mad
a movement toward the center. i think of it as obama negotiating with himself with an intransigent right which used its power to hold the country hostage, rather than finding common ground. >> so, let's talk about what you did and didn't learn. four debates t now. do you have any idea of how governor romney would manage tod cut income tax rates by 20% without increasing the deficit? or which tax deductions he woul? eliminate? or specifically, how he's going to create the 12 million jobs he's promised? or what barack obama's going to do in his second term? do you have any sense of that? >> well, in the case of the 12 million jobs, as we know, you don't have to do anything and you'll get 12 million jobs. any number of economists and moody's analytics have predicted that simply by keeping present policies in place, 12 million jobs will be created over that period. so it's not much of a boast. for the tax policy, my guess is that he doesn't know and he is just saying things. he has said he wants to cut taxes -- rates by 20%. and i believe he does and would. but when you ask him why that won
to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> welcome back. we continue to track hurricane sandy at 5:45 in the morning. this is a live look outside right now in fairfax county, virginia where the rain continues to fall. it is going to get worse, folks. trust us. tucker says it is continuing this way. right now, it is just rain and wind, subtle wind at this point in some areas but it will get worse, very bad so brace yourselves for some possible dangerous bad situations out there when it comes to this weather. >> and tucker, of a got an update earlier on. it appears to be tracking a little closer to us but either way, we'll all get something out there. >> it looks like on the latest advisory, the hurricane center give it a slight jog to the south. that would mean the center would be even a little closer to us, perhaps crossing the delaware, delaware bay. tropical storm-force winds from the carolinas to maine and the hur
concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. and this is maryland. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney teacher: this is west virginia, pennsylvania, delaware. every year marylanders spend five hundred and fifty million gaming at casinos in these other states. question seven will build a new casino and bring table games to baltimore... generating hundreds of millions for schools. and that money has to go to education. it's the law. so vote for question seven. so we can stop spending all that money here, and keep maryland money in classrooms like mine. >>> we have a heavy rain falling in the district now. it looks like a ghost town because metro bus and rail not running. the nonessential employees of government not here. so it's not a lot of people working. a lot of people hunkering down. >> people are heeding the warnings that we've heard from the mayor. both governors and federal officials as well. we want to get the latest from a neighborhood that know
a vote against barack obama. a lot of those voters will say, barack obama is -- we can't afford four more years of this guy. they'll go with mitt romney. mitt romney has done a good job attacking through the middle. there's a lot more enthusiasm with republican voters. i haven't totaled polls. i've looked at them. my guys are smiling, too. i think ohio is going to go romney's way and i think that it's going to be one of those things that if you have somebody like rob portman working so closely with the romney campaign leading the charge, very popular senator, i think they'll do well in ohio. >> john, you have been getting bad press, the republicans have for this new ad running in ohio. let me play a little bit of it for you. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> chrysler thought that ad was so misleading they put out a statement making the point that, in fact, they're adding 1100 jobs in detroit and any jee
will be, the united states of america. >> you have, in obama's case, gone within four years from being an illinois state politician to the most famous person on earth, and you have confiden in both your judgment i out what's the right way to go and your ability to make iouthat way. >> america can change.th our union can be perfected. and what we've already achieved gives us he for what we can and must achieve tomorrow.us >> if he was too confident about being able to bring people together, one can understand, given the way he'd spent the previous four years. >> this is our ment. yes we can. thank you, god bless you, and may god bless the united states of america. (crowd cheering)ur (crowd chanting): yes we can! >> mitt romney, fresh from running the winter olympics... >> narrator: just three weeks after the olympics ended in march of 2002... >> ... announced that he's running for the gop nomination for governor. >> narrator: ... mitt romney was back in massachusetts. >> republicans said romney emerged as a kind of shining knight... >> lest there be any doubt, i'm in. the bumper sticker
